Hello Al Mariyah,
Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
Water lice is a condition where the toes appear white membranes caused by fungus. The fungus will spread more and multiply in moist and warm areas. The fungus will itch more when it is in a humid and warm place. There are several factors that can cause water lice, including: using thick and moist shoes, feet often sweat, wearing wet footwear, rarely washing feet.
Treatment for water lice uses antifungal ointments, but this depends on the type of severity of the fungal infection. If a fungal infection is overlapped with a bacterial infection, antifungal treatment alone will not be enough. Need antibiotic treatment to kill the bacteria. if it feels painful, can consume anti-pain such as paracetamol. If symptoms are mild, you can also soak using warm water mixed with vinegar and salt water.
There are several ways to prevent recurring water lice, namely: maintain foot hygiene, when washing feet and going to wear shoes, you should wait until they are dry, change socks regularly, don't use foot moisturizers, if you sweat often, use powder or talk.
